Dan The Fish Man

Healthy Fish, Healthy Heart

Here's a familiar face! We’ve all seen Dan Garnett selling his fish at markets all over North Devon. There’s not much Dan doesn’t know about fish, from catching them to cooking them. Local fisherman, until recently a Clovelly lifeboat crew member, and unapologetically fanatical about fish and fishing, Dan conducts his own one-man crusade for the North Devon fishing industry. He's committed to sourcing and selling the freshest local fish of the finest quality, straight off our local boats.

Turn up at Dan's colourful barrow at one of his weekly markets and you'll go away with more than just a fillet of cod in your shopping basket. Make sure you’re not in a hurry – Dan’s bound to buttonhole you about the wonders of fish and the delicious dishes you can cook up with them. If you’re lucky, he may even divulge one of his  famous recipes.

So why not visit Dan at his barrow and buy the very best locally caught fish and shellfish? And don't forget to go along to the popular Farmers' Markets now in full swing on Bideford quay. Make sure you try Dan's fabulous (and addictive!) smoked trout pate.
